Israel’s ambassador to Romania, David Saranga, said on his country’s National Day on Thursday that many Jews in Romania – scientists, politicians, writers – contributed to the success of the State of Israel.
“We are a country with multicultural genes, including Romanians. Many Jews in Romania contributed to the success of the State of Israel. These people, artists, scientists, politicians or writers, represent a living bridge between our countries. To them and the 9.5 million Israelis I wish ‘Happy Anniversary!’ ,” Saranga said in a video posted on the Facebook page of the diplomatic mission he heads.
“Thank you for all these years of friendship”, the Romanian ambassador told them.
He then spoke of the achievements of his country, “the expression of a diverse Israeli society.”
“Today, the State of Israel celebrates 73 years of independence, democracy and progress. We celebrate 73 years during which the State of Israel has become a global leader in medicine, agriculture, defence, IT and many other areas, decades in which the technologies of our people help people in all corners of the world”, Saranga stressed.
